We were delighted and honoured to work with the exceptionally talented, Tom Stuart-Smith to provide an excellent training day and tour of his private garden in Hertfordshire, UK in aid of Horatio’s Garden.

As part of the tour, Tom, an internationally renowned landscape architect and garden designer, dazzled and entertained us with his knowledge on design, planting combinations and the success and failures of his plant trials.

Our deepest thanks to Tom for his generosity, and to all who came and made it such a successful and memorable day.  We are thrilled to raise over £2,000 for Horatio’s Garden: planting hope for people living with paralysis.
